No, not Gaga, it’s Michelle Phan! Michelle is a makeup artiste par excellence, whose super slick makeup tutorials have garnered her a MASSIVE 1.5 million followers, all of whom are keen to check out her beauty tips and makeup lessons inspired by characters as diverse as Disney’s Princess Jasmine and the blue-haired computer generated pop icon Hatsune Miku. Let us tell you this: whatever her inspirations, all of Michelle’s videos are totally addictive.
Before making it big on youtube, Michelle was turned down for a role at a Lancôme counter; which might sound rather short sighted of them, but the cosmetics giant has certainly made up for that by making Michelle a spokesperson for the company. Ha! We’ve selected a couple of our fave tutorials for you, so sit back and join Grazia Daily in becoming a Phan-attic. (Dreadful pun, sorry.)
